Paddling Among Boulders

Fall is inevitably upon us as the leaves begin to change into a wide array of deep reds, yellows, and oranges. Reflecting on warmer times, and when the trees were crisp in the summer air, I am reminded of summer adventures. One memory that sticks to mind is a canoe trip I did to Bon Echo Provincial Park.

Bon Echo 1

Bon Echo features many lakes but we only paddled Mazinaw Lake which other than any of the Great Lakes is the deepest lake. On the southeastern shores of this lake is the incredible Mazinaw Rock which is an escarpment rising 100 metres (300 ft) out of the water.

Try to find the canoes and acknowledge the impressive size of the escarpment.

Mazinaw Rock is known for its native pictographs and is a National Historic Site of Canada

Bon Echo 4

It was a great time shared with great people in an awe-inspiring landscape. Provides me with memories for the rest of the year.
